Hello

I'm using Outlook 2010, and I use the Categories feature to assign emails to different persons. The categories are custom and they have already the names of the persons(e.g. John, Diane, Smith...).
I would like to know is possible to create macros and based on category I select an email to be sent to the person or person I select.
The inbox it’s share inbox and multiple persons have access to it. But is not the main inbox so some of them will not know if a email is assign to them.

Thank you.

an item change macro should be able to do that. i might have some samples that can easily be changed to do this.

This code will do it -

Code:
Public WithEvents OlItems As Outlook.Items
Public Sub Initialize_handler()
   Set OlItems = Application.GetNamespace("MAPI"). _
        GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox).Items
End Sub
Private Sub OlItems_ItemChange(ByVal Item As Object)
      
If Item.Categories <> "" Then
Dim olMail As Outlook.MailItem
Set olMail = Application.CreateItem(olMailItem)

With olMail
        .To = Item.Categories
        .Display
End With
End If
End Sub
